Getting the facts about Corona Virus, or Covid -19, and its impact on your company is a business imperative. Although the news is dominated with stories about what businesses must do, it can be overwhelming. There have been mandated insurance coverage changes, changes to HDHP’s to allow first dollar coverage for Covid related expenses, FMLA considerations, new child care issues for parents with school closures and requirements for businesses to shut down which impacts employment status and benefits offered.

Join us to hear Eric Athey, Co-Chair of the Labor and Employment Practice Group at McNees Wallace and Nurick LLP, and his colleagues, Renee Lieux and Ursula Siverling address these pressing topics and provide you with the information you need to avoid compliance pitfalls while also addressing the needs of both your business and your workforce.

A Q&A for viewers to ask live questions to the panel will follow the discussion.

This event is free and open to all.
